My first and last BMW
By phmokda on
2007 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
On the advice of a friend, I ended a twelve year streak of Lexus ownership for a new BMW. The tipping point for me was the unlimited warranty for four years or 50,000 miles. The car rides great but the I control is maddening and the car is way too computerized. It drops my bluetooth settings regularly and the battery has died three times in the last 11 months. The tow truck driver today told the cars he has to jump the most are BMW's! I am convinced it is a computer problem and they really don't know how to fix it. The driver seat, despite what seems like 1,000 different settings, is uncomfortable and has no support between the shoulder blades. This will be my last Bimmer.
Trunk space, audio, acceleration, and handling
Get rid of the I control. Give consumer an option for a full tire spare rather than the run flats. The car is too computerized-please return to basic mechanical engineering.
